RealWorld Crizmas MVC

crizmas-mvc codebase containing real world examples (CRUD, auth, advanced patterns, etc) that adheres to the RealWorld spec and API.

Demo    RealWorld

This codebase was created to demonstrate a fully fledged fullstack application built with crizmas-mvc including CRUD operations, authentication, routing, pagination, and more.

For more information on how to this works with other frontends/backends, head over to the RealWorld repo.

Getting started

  1. Clone repo
  2. npm i
  3. npm start

By default the local server will run on port 5556, but it can be changed in webpack.config.js.

Making requests to the backend API

For convenience, we're using the API server running at https://conduit.productionready.io/api. You can view the API spec here which contains all routes & responses for the server.

The source code for the backend server (available for Node, Rails and Django) can be found in the main RealWorld repo.

If you want to change the API URL to a local server, simply edit src/js/http.js.

Functionality overview

The example application is a social blogging site (i.e. a Medium.com clone) called "Conduit". It uses a custom API for all requests, including authentication. You can view a live demo here.
